    Let's say you're about to hire somebody for a position in your company. Your corporation wants someone who's fearless, charismatic, and full of new ideas. Candidate X is charming, smart, and has all the right answers to your questions. Problem solved, right? Maybe not. Psychopaths may enter as rising stars and corporate saviors, but all too soon they're abusing the trust of colleagues, manipulating supervisors, and leaving the workplace in shambles.

    What did you like best about Snakes in Suits? What did you like least?

    A fascinating subject well-explored is all but ruined by the reader's attempts at voice characterizations. This seems to be ongoing problem with audible books -- don't know if the problem is with the readers or the directors. Office conversations are coming off as poor imitations of Simpson episodes, and action sequences suggest Power Ranger cartoons. Please, performers, face the music -- You are not real actors. You'd be lucky to score a role in your local community theater. Stop trying, and just read the text. You're good at that. Inflect the dialog slightly if you must, but please, please stop with the ridiculous impersonations. You're ruining the writing. Reading an interesting book written by a creative author doesn't make you creative. Either you are or you are not -- and you are not. Please, more respect for the text.
